Nail from crucifixion found…er….maybe


2010 saw some interesting Knights Templar nonsense published on the web and in the press – this one made me chuckle back in March.

The gist is that a nail dating from the early Roman Imperial period was found in an ornate box in a church on a tiny island off the coast of Madeira, the Portuguese island in the Atlantic.  The island was “thought” to have been occupied by the Knights Templar.  The Templars were in Jerusalem.  Therefore – the nail was from the true cross and brought back by the Templars.

The find was described as “momentous” by the Knights Templar of Britannia.  A view no doubt shared by the island government of Madeira, heavily reliant on tourism.
